to what the president said today and what speaker john boehner said last week. listen to this. >> you've said that the wealthiest must pay more. would closing loopholes instead of raising rates for them sty y satisfy you? >> i think there are loopholes that should be closed and we should look at how we can make the process of deductions, the filing process easier, simpler, but when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. >> well, it feels like a dÉjÀ vu all over again. somebody is going to have to blink or we go over the fiscal cliff. my next guest knows all about fiscal cliff uncertainty and its effect on the individual investor. walter bettinger is ceo of charles schwab. the market certainly feels pessimistic. we are looking at another 200-point decline today. the market is down 5% since the president was re-elected. what are you hearing from clients? >> clients are really concerned. there is pessimism among investors. there's grea

to recognize, look, john boehner is put on the table this notion of revenues and we think you can get that through growth. we think that you can get that through reforming the tax code. gregg: right. >> but we --. gregg: so you're telling me and the president and white house are just bluffing say, no deal on rates? >> well we've heard this. we heard he will get out of guantanamo. he would cut the deficit in half. all these sorts of things are declarations. but when it comes down to it i think the president does sign an extension because it is the smart move. look, the pathway to move forward is to reform the tax code. where there is such a high level of dissatisfaction, the opportunity is for the president to bring people together around the dissatisfaction and come up with a new, more competitive tax code. gregg: come january, here's what is going to happen. i want to put this up on the screen for our viewers. 158 million americans will be affected. after an average tax hike of $3500. that means that 88% of the households are going to be seeing their taxes go up. as you know, the cbo

assess what's going to happen with republicans like speaker john boehner and mitch mcconnell? how does the president persuade them to lay down their pledges to grover norquist and commit to the nation? >> well, ultimately the president is not going to persuade them. ultimately the voters have to persuade them. i think john boehner and a few others in the republican party have got to tell eric cantor and paul ryan and michele bachmann and a lot of the tea partiers in that party, if you continue to insist that taxes are not going to be increased on the rich, we are not going to ever gain or regain control of the senate. we're going to lose control of the house in 2014, 2016. we're going to become a permanent minority party because it makes no sense to most americans. >> hit them where it hurts. professor robert reich, thank you. >>> next, how far will the president go in the showdown against john mccain. >>> but first, hampton pearson has the cnbc market wrap. good afternoon. >> good afternoon. we saw stocks move lower again on more wall street fears of going over the fiscal cliff. the d

as the middle class does not get hurt. house speaker john boehner seems optimistic about these negotiations. >> we can all imagine a scenario where we go off the fiscal cliff. if, if despite the election, if despite the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff and what that means for our economy that there's too much stubbornness in congress that we can't even agree on giving middle class family as tax cut, then, middle class families will all end up having a big tax hike. >> there are no barriers here to sitting down and beginning to work through this process. i don't think anyone on either side of the aisle underestimates the difficulty that faces us. but i do think that the spirit of cooperation that you have seen over the last week from myself and my team, from democrats across the aisle, from the president, have created an atmosphere where i think that, i'm, remain optimistic. i was born with a glass half-full. if i hadn't been i sure wouldn't be here. jon: so let's get to it. how close are we to the edge of that fiscal cliff? marjorie clifton, a former consultant to the obama campaign a

movements particularly republicans, john boehner coming out after the election, i get t revenues have to be part of the deal. as george suggested there will be arguments about how you get there but i think when i look at how the politics line up the leverage embedded in going over the cliff and what that means to the president and democrats will push us there. i just want to say macro economically, going over the cliff is a bad thing, no question about it, but going over the cliff and staying over the cliff is a lot worse than going over the cliff and kind of backtracking back up there. >> the bungy. >> the bungy jump. >> we talked about that. >> the slope, the fiscal slope. >> george, where are you on the actual rate itself? there was a conversation boehner said we'll put revenues on the table, keep it at 35%, we'll find the deductions and from the president the first time out he didn't talk about 39.6 and so there was this view amongst some who wanted to hear it somehow he was at the same place and boehner might be willing to do something. i was in d.c. yesterday and others, steve w
